Ron and Libby about to go 'over the edge' of 40-story building

Ron & Don Show host Ron Upshaw and producer Libby Denkmann are planning to rappel down a 40-story building on Friday.

The challenge is part of a fundraising effort for Special Olympics Washington. They're trying to raise $5,000.

Pierce County Sheriff's Detective Ed Troyer and KING 5's Dennis Bounds will be rappelling alongside them for the cause.

On Monday, Ron & Libby took an elevator ride to the top of the building to see just what they've gotten themselves into. It looks pretty high.

If you'd like to support Ron and Libby in their climb you can make a donation here.
